it's turned out that way. >> steve: this is really the exact game we expected. it's not how we expected to get to this point. >> brian: looks like a first down -- >> steve: i got a chain link there, pal. >> brian: okay. maybe two. >> steve: for the sake of argument, we'll call it third and one. >> brian: if it were me, i'm going to give it to the best player on your offense tonight, that's zack moss. and i'm going to run right be hind their best offensive lineman, the left guard. 320 pounds. >> steve: and what's the next play you're call, because you know it's four-down territory. >> todd: what do you say, levy, take a shot
even the aggressive play-caller that i am, would not take a shot deep down the field here. third and one. give it to moss. that was a slow developing handoff. looked like williams was thinking about maybe pulling that back out of his belly. >> brian: i don't like the zone read in short yardage situations, because you force the quarterback to make a decision and any indecision in the back's mind slows them down from getting to the line of scrimmage. i just like turn around, handing it to him on a power play and letting him go. >> steve: fourth down. they're going to bring the sticks out. and this is not necessarily the ball game, with utah still having all three time-outs left. >> brian: correct. >> steve: still big nonetheless.
>> brian: yeah, he lost yardage. you know, we have not seen any of this speed option from troy williams, but i know that's in the attack, he's not the dynamic runner that tyler huntley is, but sometimes in fourth down situations, defenses are so backed inside, they're vulnerable on the outside. >> steve: how about sneak? williams off the play fake. rolling to his right, has a man wide open! it's his tight end down inside the 5 yard line. >> brian: what a play call fro
you mentioned it. they all get wadded up on fourth and short and you get out there and i know, as a quarterback, you got him wide open on the outside. and you make him pay. >> steve: the senior from salt lake city -- that might be his first catch of the season. >> brian: wow. what a great play call. >> steve: down to the 2. on first and goal. here's williams. he'll be short. second and goal. clock winding. >> brian: if i'm utah, i'm letting as much clock come off as possible. i don't want to leave any time on the clock. unlike the fourth and short, where i doesn't like the zone read, down here, i do like the zone read, because you get the numbers with the quarterback run, and troy wilam
it in just as easily as moss can. >> steve: red zone has been an issue for utah all season long. this is second and goal from the 1 -- let's see. before the snap -- zeros on the play clock. they get the time-out? they did. >> referee: utah has taken its first time-out of the half. 30-second time-out. >> steve: 46 seconds left. we'll say regulation time now. utah down seven. at the six-inch line when we come back. [ all ] bees! [ all ] bees! the volkswagen atlas. with easy-access 3rd row. life's as big as you make it. wendy's new chicken tenders are perfectly crispy and tender.
'awesome sauce they're even better. so now the question is... to dip or not to dip? for a limited time, try the new chicken tenders with fries and a drink for just $5. only at wendy's. hi. so i just got off the phone with our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. so the incredibly minor accident that i had tonight... four weeks without the car. okay, yep. good night. with accident forgiveness, your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it. (engine roaring) ( ♪ ) ♪ i ♪ i will be king ♪ and you... drink, sir? ♪ you will be... no, thanks. (engine revving) i'm still driving. ♪ ...will drive them away ♪ ♪ we can be heroes...
so yoso does he. game? you say, "ain't nobody gonna work harder"? he said the same thing. you get an hour of training in before the sun even comes up? plenty of early risers out there. you got the gear? they got the gear. you got a secret weapon? this dude doesn't need one. see this isn't just a game of inches. this is a game of ounces. and the next ounce you give, might just be the one that the other guy doesn't. gatorade: rehydrate, replenish and refuel.
>> steve: back just in time. from the six-inch line. utah trying to tie. there's the quarterback, williams. hops in. touchdown, utes. we are an extra point away from a tie game. >> brian: what a drive. >> steve: let me ask you this. crazy talk for a second. would you ever consider going for two in this spot? with the way usc has moved the football, up and down the field at will in this se
it, yeah, absolutely. and i think kyle whittingham is considering it also because their offense is still on the field. >> steve: so, not that crazy. >> brian: no, you're smart. >> todd: he specifically asked for the left hash, too. >> brian: you're right. everything to do with his defense. >> steve: this might be winning or losing time, right here, with 42 seconds left. >> brian: they've got simpkins in the backfield. remember, simpkins was the one that threw the touchdown pass back to williams in the first half. >> steve: and mccormick in the backfield, as well. so, with those two guys in the backfield, i guarantee you, clay helton and clancy pendergast say, let's use our last time-out. those two guys are speed guys, which tells them perimeter play. might change up their defense.
the problem is that they've -- the cat's out of the bag, with respect to similarsimpkins. they know he can throw it now. >> steve: simpkins threw for a touchdown and caught a touchdown. that's when utah was scoring. late in the second quarter. >> brian: so, troy taylor has changed up now, he took similar p kins out and mccormick out and he's got moss in the backfield. >> steve: what a decision by kyle whittingham. here's williams. trying to get there for the lead, he'll come up short. he'll be stopped. harris forced the issue for the trojans.
so, williams comes up short and utah might be short, as well. down a point. with 42 seconds left. for all the talk of the offense for usc, it's the defense that holds. >> brian: he had a chance. they wanted to run a throwback to the tight end. well covered by sc, and credit to harris for coming up and making that play. his eyes were down. he had carrington in the back of the end zone. if he would have kept his eyes up, he could have flipped it to him for the conversion, but he never kept his eyes up. and for that reason, sc comes up with the stop. >> steve: onside kick is coming. utah still has two time-outs left. >> brian: here's carrington. he
zone. watch as williams flushes, he's wide open. >> steve: oh, my. >> brian: if he keeps his eyes upfield, he would have had the conversion. that's going to be one that troy williams will be haunted by. >> steve: i still like the decision. >> brian: i agree. >> steve: i still like the coaching decision to go for two there. >> brian: with the way it's gone in the second half, i completely agree with you. >> steve: mish wishnowsky. will go for the onside kick. will not get the bounce that he wanted. sc had the hands team and we've seen tyler vaughns hands all night. >> brian: you have to give credit, too, to kyle whittingham for making that call. that's incredibly difficult has a head coach, in this environment, on the road against this team, to make that call, to go for two and -- >> steve: he'll be
about this. >> brian: he will, he knows that, but to still have the guts to make the call. what a game they played tonight. troy williams was outstanding. zack moss, i give my game ball to him. unbelievable effort on the road. >> steve: 42 seconds left on the clock. two time counts still left for utah. darnold will run around there and kill some clock. >> brian: at the end of the day, right, it's those three long touchdown drives in the second half for sc offensively. one drive, it was all darnold making plays. extending plays. next drive, it was the offensive line of ronald jones. it was a team effort, a team win tonight for clay helton's team. >> steve: just five seconds came off the clock there. so impressed, too, by utah, who could have
touchdown drive themselves, to put them in position to win. >> brian: yep. >> steve: they could have folded up after usc moved up and down the field, erased their big lead, but they did not. what a ball game this has been tonight here in los angeles. >> brian: back and forth. unbelievable game. and how about the way sam darnold responded after the way he started the game, three turnovers? was -- got a little glimpse into the heart and the guts and the grit of number 14 for usc. >> steve: last time-out there for utah. >> brian: so, now sc goes on the road. notre dame, right? and notre dame, nobody's talking about notre dame, but they're creeping around, you know, six, seven in the country and notre dame's got, you know, players galo galore. that's going to be a whale of a ball game next week. but if they can get through that, look at what sc has on the rest of their
to get to santa clara and potentially meet up with the huskies of washington. >> steve: pac-12 dramatically changing, i think, after last night's events. third and 19 here. and the clock will wind. and that will do it. what a ball game here tonight. brk awesome. >> steve: and i mean, these players will feel the effects of this game into next week. >> brian: cam smith, the linebacker for sc, and zack m s moss, those two guys, they gave us a treat tonight. that was fun to watch. >> steve: it was all utah early. tough times for sam darnold, a first half he would like to forget. and in the
and leads his team to a victory. he's standing by with todd mcshay. >> todd: thank you, steve. look at this game, the first hatch, the offensive struggles and then second half, it clicks, 21 points. what was the difference, man? >> i think we just got rolling. we found a rhythm and, you know, just -- it felt good to get a rhythm. and, you know, to be on the same page with the receivers, the o-line was on the same page and, you know, that's what happens, you know? we're a great team. we believe we are. and when we're on the same page, when we don't beat ourselves, we're hard to stop. >> todd: how big was your defense tonight? >> oh, my gosh. the defense was huge. we couldn't be in the position we're in today, getting that win without our defense. appreciate it, bro. but it's a great team win. we'll look at the film, get better, as well. >> todd: congratulations. >> thank you. >> steve: i think todd and sam really covered that all. you talk about the offense, the great drives and yet with all the great drives in the end, it was still the defense of the trojans that had to make the play to save the game.
the first half, too, they played excellent defense. this is a game when clay helton looks at the film, so many areas for improvement. the first half offensively, but so many good things to build on, the heart and the passion and the fight in this team in the second half was impressive. >> steve: we like night games, huh? games are better at night. final score, southern cal defeats utah 28-27 in a thriller. tonight's game was produced by bill bonn nel and directed by derek mobley. next week, state college. big ten battle. michigan and penn state with chris, herbie and maria. for brian griese and todd mcshay, i'm steve levy. let's go to the ford wrapup and cassidy hubbarth. >> usc avoids the upset, but week seven was not short of shockers. the crazy got started early, too, with two top ten teams going down last night. and the carnage at the top carried over to today. to the s.e.c., with
auburn. fourth quarter, fourth and ten. auburn down four. last chance. and jarrett stidham sacked. lsu gets the win in death valley. now, while auburn was knocked off by lsu, the two other s.e.c. teams in the top ten cruised to blow out victories. top ranked alabama won 41-9 over arkansas, while number four georgia beat missouri 53-28. so, one and four win easy, but miami was sweating in the fourth. daryl langham makes the crazy catch to keep miami alive. and miami would kick a field goal for the win and to improve to 5-0 for the first time since 2013. now, no issues for number six tcu, who withstood multiple weather delays in a 26-6 win over kansas state. and number seven wisconsin also stayed unbeaten with a 17-9 win against purdue. meanwhile, j.t. barrett looking like 2014 j.t. recently. big name at nebraska, leading eight scoring drives on their first eight
threw for five. he completed passes to ten different receivers and accounted for almost 400 total yards in the win. we will see yet another upset this weekend? pac-12 after dark continues. go check out number five washington, trailing arizona state 10-0, currently in the second quarter over on espn. and after the u-dub game goes final, it's "sportscenter" at night. herbie will discuss alabama's dominance, and how about the walkoff history in houston? thanks for watching the ford wrapup, presented by the new 2018 ford escape. also unstoppable. i want you to take it easy. go slow. ♪ come on mom! ♪ let's go! ♪
